"Reading a poem, falling in love, or looking at an object and noticing the poetry within it, opens up your heart and makes you feel as if you've got a positive right to exist." - Tobia Scarpa

Originally inspired by a sketch made by Tobia's father, Venetian architect and designer, Carlo Scarpa, the iconic 121 came to life with a distinct touch from the Scarpa's in 1965. The design is characterized by a firm and robust wooden frame that creates a striking contrast to the lightness of the leather covered seat and back. A straightforward chair with an aesthetic that can complement both classical and cutting-edge interiors.

The 121 Scarpa dining chair was designed alongside the classic 925 Scarpa lounge chair from 1966. The two chairs are a prime example of Afra & Tobia Scarpa's work and share the same double trestle structure with characteristic rounded joints. Both designs are now a part of the Karakter collection.

The work of postmodern Italian design-couple Afra & Tobia Scarpa consists of architecture, everyday household items, art glass, and exclusive home interior design pieces, many of which are on permanent display in museums worldwide. Together they ran one of the most widely acclaimed professional design studios and had an impressive impact on Italian design in the 1970s and 1980s.

121 Scarpa dining chair is available in several variants of high-quality wood with seat and back anatomically shaped in plywood, covered in fine European leather, and attached by bolts to crosspieces along the center. A decidedly modernist aesthetic that prioritizes pared-back elegance and great comfort.
